TS: Research man horribly overlooked
It must be tough being a senior economist at the CBI. Just ask Alex Muscatelli, the man responsible for researching its recent survey of the financial services sector.
At a press conference held this week in conjunction with survey sponsors PwC, Muscatelli could not get in a word edgeways as CBI colleagues and PwC analysts grabbed the glory.
Sudhir Junanker, associate director of the CBI, introduced the major findings of the study, followed by analysis from John Hitchens a banking partner at PwC and comment from Ian Dilks also a partner at the Big Five firm. But poor Alex, the author and man responsible for the research, said not a word.
To add insult to injury, Muscatelli didn’t even get an introduction until after Junanker fielded questions from the media.
